50 Ideas You Really Need, History of art / art & design styles, Prose: non-fiction

The perfect guide to the most important ideas in art through the ages.

A visit to an art gallery can be a baffling experience - a bewildering parade of paintings, sculptures, artists and movements with little perspective on how they all fit together. 50 Art Ideas you Really Need to Know is here to help. For all those who don't know their Degas from Dali or their Monet from their Mondrian, this informative and insightful guide discusses 50 of the most important and influential concepts in art from the Ancient Greeks to the present.

Taking in the defining artistic moments in history, including the Baroque, the Renaissance and the Modern, this book also explores influential movements such as Romanticism, Cubism and Minimalism. Susie Hodge's concise and insightful text is accompanied by a glossary explaining key terms, as well as brief mini-essays and informative biographies on major artists of the period.

Featuring an informative array of images to illustrate key concepts and comprehensive timelines to place each movement in its context, this book provides a broad-ranging survey of the most significant developments in the world of art and design. It will delight anyone who has ever been mystified by artistic jargon and wants to gain a deeper, more thorough enjoyment of art.
